to have that out there. i think jon stewart of "the daily show" would agree. quickly, you mentioned ohio and that poll is closing. there's a great stump effort today with chris christie, the new jersey governor, who's so exciting on the trail. i want your opinion as to whether that is a critical issue going into this debate or whether just the vp debate performance is what's critical going into thursday's big-time in kentucky? >> reporter: yeah, the vp debates, you know, usually don't matter that much. but here's why this vp debate will matter so much right now because the momentum has shifted to mitt romney. so the romney campaign doesn't want anything to deflect from that. they're hoping for a strong performance from paul ryan. on the other side, of course, the obama campaign is hoping for a breakout performance from joe biden to kind of possibly blunt this rise in the polls by mitt romney. ashleigh, check this out.
